Software as a Service (SaaS) has emerged as one of the fastest growing and lucrative sectors, whose growth is being fuelled by the massive adoption of digital technologies. It is also one of the few industries that can aim for global markets from the get-go. Reports suggest that the global addressable market for SaaS solutions will be around $400 billion by 2025, which reflects a massive opportunity for Indian SaaS startups to explore new avenues globally.

However, with global opportunities comes competition on a global scale, where product differentiation and customer experience are paramount to long-term success. In this CTO roundtable, industry leaders will provide their perspectives on key trends shaping the SaaS industry, the need for SaaS startups to think global from Day 1, strategies to adopt such thinking challenges faced while scaling globally, frameworks to make appropriate technology choices, among other topics.

AWS Startup CTO Virtual Roundtable
AWS Startup CTO Virtual Roundtable is an invite-only online series for startup CTOs. This will be a platform where CTOs can learn from each other and share the different business challenges they face. As a CTO, the responsibility for the security of corporate networks, hardware, software, and technologies are always on the top of the list. That has only compounded in the current scenario. This series will be a deep-dive into key challenges, solutions, use cases, and best practices to learn how other organizations are leveraging technology and the Cloud to overcome these challenging times.

This series will feature leading CTOs who lead across verticals like healthcare, fintech, logistics, gaming, and leverage technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning.

These sessions will also offer insight into how AWS customers are leveraging their technologies to ensure productivity and profitability as the way we do business is changing forever. Hear how AWS is supporting customers providing web services that have had to rapidly scale to meet unprecedented demand.

The main objective of this event is to enable knowledge sharing among peer CTOs in the startup community about the challenges faced, solutions implemented or best practices around new technologies.
